Sewing triumph




I made a vest for Logan, which isn't hard in itself, but I added pockets and a zipper! This is the first time I've done pockets or zippers. It doesn't look great but I'm proud of myself! This opens up so many more options now.
I also made a hat for Logan. Again it didn't turn out great but it fits and he likes it. Mark actually thought I had bought the hat which was so cool! The way I ended up cutting the fabric none of the designs ended up in the hat. Duh.

Today was a big sewing day, I finally finished the last 2 pairs of pants I've been needing to make for Logan. He finally has some pants that fit! He is at an in between size where 6/7 is too small and 8/10 is WAY too big. So he will be wearing handmade pants all winter. I still have a bunch of Christmas presents to sew, but that will be another day. Right now, I'm hungry.

Zippers and pockets how ambitious!

I'm very impressed. If you hadn't said you sewed the items yourself I would have assumed ,from the pictures, that you bought them. They look great!! I have sewn zippers before and the regular (not the placket - those are a bear to sew) kind weren't too hard. I never attempted pockets though. Way to go!!!

Farm Mom - Sewing actually isn't that hard. I took a 3 week class and it was well worth the money. I learned all the basics and it gave me the confidence to try some new things on my own, like pockets and zippers.

Deanne - Logan has really fun taste in fabric! I love taking him to fabric store and letting him lose.
